Also in the spirit of doing Japan-specific costumes, Husband went most nights as a namazu, the catfish that causes earthquakes (and Colonel Sanders on Halloween night).

And yes, he is drinking beer through a straw. It's the namazu way.
I won the costume contest at the Halloween party sponsored by Metropolis Magazine, which was pretty thrilling (video here, but I've already spoiled the ending).

Like this one, 30-second recap of an international party...
...this video about the Metropolis Glitterball...
...this video by the same guy about Halloween in general...
...and this one that I found more or less by accident (the best moment is at 8:05 when the guy videotaping realizes Husband is Colonel Sanders and nearly loses his mind).
All in all, I consider this year's Halloween to be a success.
